i love this pet ... I use with my Azure Whelping and the damage bonus he gets
from the arcane winds is freakin awesome . can one hit lvl 25 comon pets with ease and uncommon most the time to
Shadelings and eyes are single mobs. I have yet to see a rare shadeling, used a stone on mine. I got a rare eye but it took a lot and I was always the only one there.
These are useful for lvling pets if you're like me and enjoy the slow way. If you're just starting out, this is a good one to grab since they are lvl 16-18, easily gunned down by strong lower lvl pets, and fly solo so no pesky second or third to beat down. Eyeblast and Interrupting Gaze are a dead useful combo too. Also, my first Flawless unmarked battlestone dropped after fighting one, but that was two droprate modifications ago.
Easy to spot them near kara
It's not normal for almost all other pets but the Arcane Eyes and I think also the Restless Shadling both only come with 1 of their type rather than 2 other random pet types from the zone.
Started pet battling today and all of the Eyes I found were single mob fights...is that normal?
I am having the worst luck with this guy. I happened to fly down there just to battle the tainer and the Shadelings were up so I got a rare one of those and thought "Hey I never came here and caught an Arcane Eye, I'll nab one while I'm here"
Just got my rare on second try (first was uncommon). There are still three left so that makes five.
Slychd - It could simply be bad timing. This battle pet and the Restless Shadeling are on daily and/or timed spawns from what I can tell. I killed all the Arcane Eyes in Deadwind Pass roughly 30 minutes ago and none of them have respawned. I've also read that the Shadelings only come out somewhere between midnight and 9am EST, then despawn late morning.
EDIT: After posting this comment the Eyes started respawning again. So figure a 30-40 minute timer on respawns.
Flew to Kara to try to battle the last Master Pet Tamer. Found exactly one Arcane Eye, close to noon server time. Fortunately, it was rare. Now I only have to come back for the other pet and I'll be done with Deadwinds Pass. :)
I am not sure if this the best place to ask a question, but since it is (IMO) the best and most comprehensive pet site, I am willing to risk the down votes. I have used these wild pets to level several mechanical pets up and througout all these battles, I have come across a total of three rares which I have captured and kept. Since capturing the last one, I have not seen any more. None. I have never heard of any sort of limit, does anyone have an idea why this would be?
I have this and my Celestial Dragon together while leveling up other pets and they make a great tag team especially on those tough wilds that just "get your goat" so to speak. If you do this combo, have your dragon with arcane winds then switch to your eye, open with drain power, then use mana surge (does have a chance to miss) then follow with psychic blast. hopefully by the time this is over you should either need to switch back to the dragon or the battle is finished. GL! :)
found a lot of these today about 4pm central time had to battle 4 til i got an uncommon and then about 4 more to get a rare found the rare on top of the building at 49 69
I have been grinding a lot of these over the last few days to level up a bunch of low level pets. The only rare Arcane Eye I have yet fought (and captured) was level 16 (you can see in my collection that it is still 16). All others I have seen were 17 or 18 as the database says.
Edit: Sorry, didn't realize pets in this level range lose a level when tamed.
About 5am Zangarmarsh time or 7pm EDT I snagged a rare Arcane Eye first battle to replace the green from a previous trip. They are on the grounds and sometimes on the balconies of the towers. At this time there were many of them all around the place. There is also the Master Pet Trainer with the daily quest if you have unlocked them :)
Is it just me or did something happen to these after 5.2? Each time I've been by there I can see none. They used to be all over the place. Is anyone else experiencing this also?
Found a rare-quality one yesterday. It was the only battle pet in the area so lucky me! It was evening-hours EST so not sure what that equates to in-game but it never hurts to do a fly-through.
This pet with panderen air spirit setting the table for it is lethal
Flew into Deadwind Pass at 3:30 AM CST on a Sunday, they were all over the place. They respawned until about 3:37.
I don't know if this is a fluke or not, but I ended up having this as the only pet against me in the fight. It made it incredibly easy to catch one. You can use low-level pets to catch one, about 3 lvl 10s is more than enough. I hope blizz doesn't change this.
